This book is to honor Michael J. Goldstein Ph.D., Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at the University of California, who passed away in 1997. Mike was known for his caring, humanistic, and hope-inspiring approach to helping patients and their relatives cope with severe psychiatric illnesses, and for the support, warmth, and open-mindedness he showed in his relationships with colleagues and visitors from all over the world. Mike’s humor, his optimism that social science could be used to better the human condition, and his conviction that patients, relatives, and clinicians could work collaboratively to manage psychiatric illness and improve the lives of all involved, were an inspiration to everyone he touched. Furthermore, because of the nature of Mike’s work, his research has had a tremendous influence on many who never knew him, and the clinical innovations he helped develop have improved the lives of countless patients and families, and will no doubt continue to help many in the future. While Mike’s work lives on, we and many others will miss his friendship and uplifting spirit he engendered in all of us.
